Waves crash and roar.
The sea implores.
I am a powerful force created by nature.
I can be an enemy or a friend.
In a storm, I will drown you in my depths.
I can be calm and at rest.
I keep secrets hidden on the floor of my ocean.
There may be treasure there, or you may find the remains of those who underestimated my strength.
I am the taker of life.
But for those who know how to navigate my waters, I am the maker of men.
